Michel Bourez, 3rd at the Fiji Pro, 2nd on the WCT Rankings.
Nat Young buries rail and jumps to 7th on the WCT rankings.
Nat can also throw down a solid claim.
Medina will have to swap the red jersey for a yellow one at the up-and-coming J-Bay Open as he's now World No. 1.
Medina's No. 1 fan and boat driver Ulei claiming his Semifinal win.
Kolohe Andino looked sharp in the Semifinals, the only thing that let him down was wave selection.
Medina came to Fiji five days early and it sure paid off.
Andino moves into the top 10 for the first time in his WCT career, currently sitting in 9th, can he continue to climb?
Pre-heat psyche up.
Young had to settle for 2nd place, but after scoring waves like this he's probably not too disappointed.
At the Fiji Pro Medina was the one surfer who had it all, carves, cracks, barrels and big airs.
Medina maximising his tube time.
Fijian boat driver Ulai flying the flag for Medina.
The last time Medina won two events in one season was in 2011, his Rookie year.
That winning feeling.
It's his party, he can do what he wants to.
Wonder why he's smiling? He won his fourth career WCT, pocketed $100K and re-gained the No. 1 spot on the WCT rankings. Not a bad day.
The only people as happy, if not happier than Gabriel were the locals!
A hero's welcome.
Vinaka Medina! Vinaka Fiji!
Medina and Young share a laugh post Final.
The celebrations have only just begun!
This probably won't be the last time Medina and Young share a podium.
Fiji has a new hero, congratulations Gabriel Medina!
